Another method of classical variables sampling is ratio estimation, which applies the sample ratio to an entire population. If your sample for any of your client’s accounts shows errors of $1, in a total sample of $10,, your misstatement ratio is 10 percent (1,/10,). You would then apply this ratio to the entire population. If the. Though this is a book on data analysis and sampling, it is important that readers have a similar starting point with respect to the audit process. Every audit is different, yet all audits follow the same basic path, beginning with planning, followed by fieldwork, reporting, and follow-up. Definition: Audit sampling is the application of audit procedures to less than % of the total population and all the items in the population have the same chance to be selected.. This is to ensure that the items selected represent the total population which enables auditors to draw their conclusion and express their opinion based on their predetermined objective. When auditors use sampling, they can choose one of two methods: the statistical approach or the judgmental (non-statistical) approach. The statistical approach uses computer-based technology to come up with sample size numbers and randomly select items from the population. The judgmental approach, on the other hand, employs the auditor’s.

With monetary unit sampling, each dollar in a transaction is a separate sampling unit. A transaction for $40, for example, contains 40 sampling units. Auditors usually use monetary unit sampling to sample and test accounts receivable, loans. Sampling by David A.
